Have you looked at your Samsung ATIV S and thought what it would be like if you could have a third column of Live tiles? We'll be getting more room for Live Tiles with the 1080p hardware that will arrive alongside GDR3, but if you own the Samsung Windows Phone 8 device (interop-unlocked), you'll be able to add more tiles to your Start screen with some handy homebrew tools.

Samsung continues to prove it's behind the platform by releasing app updates. The latest batch are for a selection of creative apps on the Samsung Zone. Artistic Effects, Color Effects and Fun Shot have each been bumped to a new version. So what's new? Unfortunately, we're not entirely sure, but we would love to see all three combined into a killer app (hint hint, Samsung).

Just because Nokia owns about 80% of the OEM market for Windows Phone, that doesn’t mean other manufacturers can't get in on the action. There’s a Samsung device coming up around the corner called the SGH-i187, which recently spent some time at the FCC here in the United States. Now, that’s not the same consumers are going to call it, but instead they might refer to it as the Cronus.

Latest market share numbers from Russia's largest retailer puts Nokia ahead of Samsung

There’s nothing but positive results for Nokia and Windows Phone lately. Today, we’re continuing the momentum with news from Russia where Nokia has surpassed Samsung for market share. The story was first published in Vedomosti, Russia’s premier business paper

The data itself comes from Russia’s largest mobile retailer, Euroset, who have more than 5,000 stores across the vast country. Their latest report puts Nokia at 29% of the mobile market in Russia this summer, up from 27% in the spring. Samsung meanwhile has dropped to 27% from a previous 30% just a few months ago. That bump gives Nokia back the edge since Samsung beat them earlier this year (the two often go back and forth in terms of market share in the country).

In the United States there is one carrier that seems to get more Windows Phone devices than the others. And that’s because they do. AT&T has had more Windows Phone devices in the past three years that T-Mobile, Verizon or Sprint. They’re rumored to be getting the upcoming Nokia Lumia 1520, but they might have another device on the horizon. But this one doesn’t come from Nokia, it comes from Samsung.

Samsung has released two updates for its apps located in the Samsung Zone section of the Windows Phone store. Mini Diary and Photo Editor have both been bumped to new versions, though we're not entirely sure what's new. It's good to see the OEM continuing to support its Windows Phone customers with further updates, even with the Microsoft and Nokia deal in the air.

Ben Thompson of stratēchery joins Rene to talk about Microsoft in a post-Ballmer mobile market, the IBM analogy, whether they need to be more like Apple, and why Google and Samsung were so damn smart. Also: Nokia sale!

Note: This was originally supposed to be next week's episode of Vector, but due to Microsoft buying Nokia, we decided to fast-track. (It's especially interesting given Thompson, until recently, worked at Microsoft on the Windows 8 apps team, and previously interned at Apple on the Apple University project.)

Samsung has been an extremely odd egg in the Windows Phone basket. The company appears to be fighting an internal struggle between two sides - one wishes to drop Windows Phone while the other becomes mildly excited when Live Tiles are in sight. Now rumours are floating around the Internet that Samsung is indeed making another Windows Phone, codenamed the SGH-I187.

So far the Nokia Lumia 520 has been a sleeper hit. It’s the cheapest Windows Phone to date and it is constantly topping charts for in emerging markets. It seems we hear stories weekly on how the device is selling well in market after market. Here in the United States it’s available for AT&T as a GoPhone and T-Mobile sells a variant called the Lumia 521.

So how’s it going to fare against further attacks in the low-end smartphone market against competitors like Samsung and Apple?

Over at Forbes, Tero Kuittinen outlines a brinkmanship scenario where Nokia comes out on top. Don’t worry, I wasn’t familiar with the term either. Brinkmanship is the situation where you push dangerous events to the verge of disaster in the hopes that your opponents will have to make concessions and/or back down. In this case, Nokia is in a position to own the low-end smartphone market because companies like HTC, Blackberry, and Apple won’t be able to make appealing devices at low prices.

Yesterday we brought you the news of a new Body Glove case for the upcoming Sprint ATIV S Neo from Samsung that was appearing in Sprint stores. While in and of itself that news is not exciting, it did hint that an official release of the phone was close.

Today, things are moving even more as Samsung has listed the phone on their official site with the full specifications. As far as we know (and we could be wrong), this device page is new and it does confirm a few lingering questions. For one, the ATIV S Neo does have 16GB of internal storage and not 8GB as reported earlier. Combined with the up-to 64GB of expandable storage, the Neo should satisfy most users.

Say what you will about Samsung, but it looks like they’re finally sinking some money and resources into delivering quality apps for their users. Today, the Korean company has pushed out three new camera apps, which are all variations on a theme, but are still fun to use.

The three apps, Artistic Effect, Fun Shot and Color Effect, are all Lenses that can be launched to give live filters for your camera. The apps themselves are all designed around the same UI, though each comes with a dozen or so uniquely themed filters. While that may seem redundant, it’s actually a smart move as it means you have less scrolling to do when selecting your filter. Not to mention, not everyone needs Fun Shot, which makes your images distorted for goofy results.

Here is the breakdown of the three new camera apps...
